Chuck Jaffe: How I decided to give cash to kids this Halloween

I love teaching financial lessons.

I hate cleaning raw eggs off my house and picking toilet paper out of my trees.

Somewhere between the two lies my dilemma in getting fully behind the “Cash for Candy” campaign being pushed this year by the National Financial Educators Council (NEFC).

There are way too many killjoys these days trying to “improve” upon great traditions — particularly around holidays — that so many of us hold dear. To that end, the idea that nearly 100 kids would walk through my neighborhood on Monday night and that I’d be the spoil-sport who stiffs them on candy is appalling.
